The U.S. Department of Justice recently issued new guidance calling for increased focus on executives’ individual responsibility in investigations, prosecutions, and resolutions of corporate misconduct. For companies, this policy could have significant effects on internal investigations and on negotiations with the government.

In this webinar recording, we provide a timely update on how these guidelines will impact companies faced with government investigations. Our team of seasoned former prosecutors and attorneys with extensive board and C-level representation help you learn why this new policy poses several concerns. Topics include:

  • Distilling the Yates Memorandum
  • Disclosing “relevant facts” for cooperation credit
  • Potential conflicts between corporations and their employees
  • Concerns about waiver of attorney-client privilege and work product protection
  • Possible changes in how companies should approach indemnification
  • Proactive steps to implement strong compliance and ethics programs
